Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

305 ILCS 5/5A-13

    (305 ILCS 5/5A-13)
    Sec. 5A-13. Emergency rulemaking.
    (a) The Department of Healthcare and Family Services (formerly Department of Public Aid) may adopt rules necessary to implement this amendatory Act of the 94th General Assembly through the use of emergency rulemaking in accordance with Section 5-45 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. For purposes of that Act, the General Assembly finds that the adoption of rules to implement this amendatory Act of the 94th General Assembly is deemed an emergency and necessary for the public interest, safety, and welfare.
    (b) The Department of Healthcare and Family Services may adopt rules necessary to implement this amendatory Act of the 97th General Assembly through the use of emergency rulemaking in accordance with Section 5-45 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. For purposes of that Act, the General Assembly finds that the adoption of rules to implement this amendatory Act of the 97th General Assembly is deemed an emergency and necessary for the public interest, safety, and welfare.
    (c) The Department of Healthcare and Family Services may adopt rules necessary to initially implement the changes to Articles 5, 5A, 12, and 14 of this Code under this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly through the use of emergency rulemaking in accordance with subsection (aa) of Section 5-45 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. For purposes of that Act, the General Assembly finds that the adoption of rules to implement the changes to Articles 5, 5A, 12, and 14 of this Code under this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly is deemed an emergency and necessary for the public interest, safety, and welfare. The 24-month limitation on the adoption of emergency rules does not apply to rules adopted to initially implement the changes to Articles 5, 5A, 12, and 14 of this Code under this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly. For purposes of this subsection, "initially" means any emergency rules necessary to immediately implement the changes authorized to Articles 5, 5A, 12, and 14 of this Code under this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly; however, emergency rulemaking authority shall not be used to make changes that could otherwise be made following the process established in the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act.
